Photo Friday (vol. LXX) [2000 words edition]

First thousand words:
Second thousand words:

Those of you in Israel... call the number on the side of the truck to find out the location of the mobile blood donor unit nearest you.  Those outside of Israel (or those who can't give blood), go here and find something else worthwhile to do.  The comments on that post also contain additional worthwhile ideas.

Shabbat Shalom!

Kol Hakavod to you! I give blood here in the US all the time. Wish I could send it to Israel. For now, prayers will have to suffice. Shabbat Shalom!

Westbankpapa gave at a drive given by his hi-tech company. Those of you in Israel who work in a company like that should call the human resources person and ask if they will do the same.

Sending prayers... Shabbat Shalom!

Great work, David. Ball-and-chain donated to Magen David Adom at your suggestion, but it reminds me that I'm over due to donate blood myself.

Praying for victory...

Shabbat shalom.

I commend you for what you are doing, but I have to admit, I'm getting queasy just looking at that picture.

Wishing you all well.

Kol HaKavod.

Did Jaime just say seeing your picture makes her nauseous?


What's that in your right hand? Trying to get blood from a stone again?

Kol Hakavod to you for inspiring us.

Kudos. I hope they used a clean needle...just kidding..

Job well done. Sending prayers. Stay safe.

A worthy way to spend your time, the outside of Israel list renders me short of many things but the Prayer and my Tzahal T-Shirt (drives my Arab neighbors Wild) are the least I can do ;-)

Trepp, I must say you have a lovely coloring for someone donating blood...thought you'd be a little more greenish.
Wishing you and your family safety.

"I hope they used a clean needle..."

HAHAHA! Joking about hepatitis C! That's a real knee-slapper!


Posted by: Doctor Bean | Jul 21, 2006 7:07:56 PM

Good for you! Shame they are not letting me donate, otherwise I would have done that a long time ago. Hope all is well! Have a good weekend, and stay safe!

Gee thanks Yonah.

David, rest assure, it wasn't your face that made me queasy. Even my biggest crush could be lying there (Patrick Dempsey) and I would have thought the same thing...ok that not's true. Actually I would be thinking that I would want to be there next to him, holding his hand but I'll leave that thread for another time. : )

i was wondering if it was feasible to donate blood to israel from the states

Posted by: phishaliyah | Jul 22, 2006 2:47:30 AM

Ah, yes, the Friendly Neighborhood Vampire Van. I'll be paying them a visit tomorrow, be-li neder.

Wonderful idea. The Jews of the world stand together in support of brethren in Israel.

Posted by: Stacey | Jul 23, 2006 4:48:38 PM

Okay, i'll try again!
(hopefully i won't be dehydrated this time)

I'm actually very p***ed off with MDA and have been for the a while. After accumulating no less than 47 (yes 47) blood donations (I used to go every 4 months) especially being O Rh- (of course I'm negative) which is "universal donor" - after all that they won't take my blood any more. Why? Simple, till July 1980, and from October 1980 till May 1981 I was living in Britain. Now I'm almost a pariah and my blood won't be used. I reckon they're over-reacting totally and I'm annoyed. I won't even mention their policy regarding gays.

Also falling into the category of those who aren't able to donate blood,(online guidelines from the American Red Cross or press #5 on the MDA 1-800 voicemail menu for Hebrew) I've already made a monetary donation to MDA, which also accepts donations from Israelis.
